Sounds as if the payment processor jumped ship leaving both the casinos and the players in the lurch. Bad business all the way around. Keep track of any and all fees associated with the bounced check, the casino should reimburse you. Actually ... the casinos should have emailed each and every customer who received these checks with due warning. But I'm sure they didn't. :rolleyes: Ewallets are perhaps a US player's best solution for payouts right now.

Same Issue

Judy,
I had the same issue with a check i withdrew from a fortune lounge casino, Vegas Palms, for over $1000 dollars. Which was also through Zip Payments. My bank returned it, due to account closed, and since my bank account was new they put a hold on it. So now I cannot use my bank card which means I have to go into the bank everytime I want to make a withdrawl (for three months). Pretty crappy! My bank said if I could get a letter proving I wasn't at fault they would possibly reverse it for me. I contacted fortune lounge and they said they couldn't do that for me. They recently sent me a new check this time through an ecash company. I deposited it over a week ago and it still hasn't cleared. Very nervous about the same thing happening. But I figure I might as well put it into the same account instead of opening a new one and having it happen again. I will let you know if it cleared. Since your check was from a different casino maybe it was a zip payments issue. If it does clear then I know that it was just an issue they happened to have at the time with zip payments, and I will still continue to play at their casino. But thanks for posting because I was beginning to wonder if I was the only one.

Hi bagotis

Please let me know if you have issues with the check clearing through your account.

We have not had any issues with re-issued checks and it could just be that your bank has a long clearing period.

Good has come of it

The check did clear it just took a couple weeks. Since then i have played and won another large amount. Don't mind the checks taking a while to clear as long as they clear. So I would now recommend the fortune lounge group to everyone. It was obviously not their fault. Thank you guys for correcting the problem quickly. :rolleyes:

Though my check has still not cleared I will inform when it does. I was also wondering if you guys can pay with other methods like western union of some other way that does not involve me depositing checks into my bank. I'm in the US.

Not sure what you are referring to but if you're thinking of BAMBIWIN's "why can't I post" message, that's been moved here.

Ah, figured it out: posts related to alt payment methods move to: FL: pay with other methods?.
